About Us


RecycleMe Iowa (RMI) is a full recycling service that offers indoor and outdoor pickup options at hundreds of apartments, offices, & multi-unit apartment complexes. We also provide zero-waste consultation and full recycling services for events up to 30,000 attendees.


Our Mission: Provide Affordable, Convenient Access to Recycling Programs and Services. Before RecycleMe Iowa, there wasn’t a local affordable option for recycling. We recognized this problem, reached out to friends and other community members to gather information and support, and RecycleMe Iowa was born Earth Day 2010.

What People Say About Us


I am incredibly thrilled that I FINALLY have a wonderful option for recycling! Living in an apartment complex that does not offer anything but a dumpster, options are limited. Thank you so very much for providing this service!!!


We were really disappointed that the apartments didn't offer recycling, and my husband was having to drive to the center on Euclid every other week, which was just a pain. Your service made it so much easier! Thank you again for what you do.
